Christmas is finally here...it is HERE!!! Four...more...days! I am glad my family starts celebrating before Thanksgiving, because if we didn't, it would go by way too fast! (It already does, but at least we're enjoying it!) I LOVE CHRISTMAS!
The past few weeks have been full of coconut cakes, fudge, Oreo truffles, favorite carols, balsam candles, pictures, wrapping presents, Christmas movies, such as "It's a Wonderful Life," plenty of smiles, and thoughts and ponderings about Jesus' birth...the most important part of Christmas! Though I dearly love the festivities, let us not get so caught up in the all the "stuff" that we miss the greatest Gift of all. Without Christ, there is no Christmas!
If I don't blog again before the 25th, "Merry Christmas!!!" Enjoy the day celebrating Christ's birth!
"Joy to the world! The Lord is come: let earth receive her King! Let every heart prepare him room and heaven and nature sing."
Much love and blessings!
"And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins."
Matthew 1:21 (KJV)
